Journal History

The open-access journal ‘Language and Psychoanalysis’ was founded in 2012 at the Department of Linguistics and English Language at Lancaster University. It aimed to address an apparent gap in publishing opportunities for research and exploration in the role of language in psychoanalysis. Since its initial inception, the journal has grown to an international readership and gained considerable support from the academic community. The journal provides a sharing environment for contributions to engage in the conversation about language and psychoanalysis in its widest sense. Now edited jointly from Edinburgh and Lancaster, from June 2016 ‘Edinburgh Library Open Journals’ at the University of Edinburgh will be the new host for ‘Language and Psychoanalysis’.
